Switch stock 16 to stock 18

I am a newb to this and I have a question. I have stock 16 inch wheels on my 08 JK. I am purchasing stock 18 inch wheels from Craigslist I consider myself to be pretty handy and would like to do anything Incan myself to save money.

What do I need I need to do if anything when I put the new 18's on?

Thanks for the help

Just swap 'em out. Nothing else needed.

Thanks for the help. I have been told that the dealership would have to flash the computer in order to turn off the tpms an adjust for tire size. But I don't care about the tpms I monitor my tires weekly and dont need a dummy light

To recalibrate your speedo, you can buy an AEV Procal. It does a bunch of other handy things, too, such as adjusting TPMS, extend engine idle for winch use, shift points, etc.

Very worthwhile $150.
